Queenstown, NZ. You make me happy.
I just don't know if people like me. I know when they don't like me 'cause they'll say things like, 'Yeah, that's him, officer.'

That's awesome!! They're working on some mountain bike tracks at Spring Mountain. I'm looking forward to seeing what they'll be like.

They dumped a heap of dirt in front of Pyros in white rock (assuming this may be for track upgrades) but I still smashed out a PB there this morning

Just finished the Brisbane to Gold Coast in 3:19:15. Last year I did it in 4hrs 20min, and this year I wanted to get under 4hrs (which I knew I would do), but I wanted to get as close to 3hrs 30min as I could.

Totally SMASHED that time! We did the first 80km non-stop, then had a quick (5-10min) rest at the 80km mark, and then powered on through to the finish line. Loving the new road bike! Had a steak at the Regatta for lunch and will settle the afternoon with some beers. YEAH!

Impressive, and that's coming from someone with close to zero interest in bikes.

Need to get back on the fitness pony, slacked off since getting back into 40+ hour weeks.

Thanks guys!

Cam - sub-3hrs I think is achievable for me. That's what I'm going to aim for. I've got a year to get to that level, and I think I can do it. :D

Definitely doable. Start up the front, find a good bunch and you'd be laughing.

Just built a new pc for my (future) brother in law.

Nothing special, H81N mobo, i3 4170, 8gb G.Skill RAM and a Sandisk 240gb plus SSD running Windows 10.

Boot time? A lazy 6 seconds...
